Delegate Testimonials

I love the e-Crime Private Meeting Series because they're to the point, a focused topic for discussion with like-minded individuals from across industry sectors.  I cannot deny the private venue and dining adds to the occasion but it is much more than that.  I always come away with further knowledge and understanding of the topic at hand and a few more industry contacts which is no bad thing!

Global Information Security Manager, Withers Worldwide

Once again, many thanks for the invite and opportunity. I’ll be delighted to attend the next event.

CISO, Carrefour

It was an excellent meeting, great facilitator from [sponsor], great discussion of issues with cloud adoption, data ownership etc.  Great venue too.  Personally my company has a very specific use case related to one of the products that [sponsor] are bringing to market, so I was able to discuss that and start the dialogue with their guys.

Head of Information Security & Audit, Paragon Customer Communications

It was a great meetup with my fellow Information Security colleagues across the Netherlands from leading technology companies and financial institutions. Thanks to Ashley Webb Brown for arranging such a great e-Crime private networking lunch.

CISO, Kyocera Document Solutions

This was a great event, great venue and perfectly pitched.  It was great to meet likeminded security professionals and really enjoyed the informed debate!  Will definitely attend another.

Senior Cyber Investigator, Barclays

Having attended the Cyber Threat to the UK Legal Sector roundtable discussion, this served as a very productive and informative event. 

It gave an excellent opportunity to share experiences, challenges and approaches to best practice in an informal yet simultaneously effective manner and forum.  The atmosphere was one of open dialogue, very much in the spirit of collaboration around shared objectives and strategy. 

I would therefore recommend participation at these sector-oriented events, whereby like-minded individuals can benefit from sharing views and work towards common goals.

Head of Supply Chain Information Risk, Pinsent Masons LLP

Ce fût intéressant et avec plaisir. Merci pour l'invitation. Je viendrais si possible aux prochains évènements.

It was a very interesting and useful event – the pleasure was mine to be able to attend. I’ll be happy to participate again.

IT Project Manager, BNP Paribas

The event for me was a first and the sponsor provided some real clarity around the PCI landscape that Comic Relief will use to help future proof its approach to PCI going forward.

Head of Technology Partner Development, Comic Relief

It was excellent. Like minded attendees sharing valuable information confidentially. Well organised!

Director - Global Security, American Express

I highly appreciated the knowledge and insights of both the sponsor and the peers that attended. This has provided new ideas on how I might tackle the challenges we have, and I am having follow-up meetings, which will prove very useful in my change strategy.

Global Head of Access Management, Financial services organisation

Thank you for the invitation for this event, which I found to be very informative, and interesting. Also would like to add that I was particularly pleased that the [sponsor] team were both engaging regarding questions raised by ourselves, as well as displaying a very deep understanding of their field of expertise (always nice to see).

Look forward to future events.

Senior Technology Risk Manager, Credit Suisse

I really enjoyed it – got me thinking!

It was interesting to discuss the topics from lots of different angles with a wide range of people involved.

Senior Product Manager, Identity & Access Management, BBC

I had an amazing time discussing and sharing knowledge about Threat Hunting and other cyber security areas. The audience was from multiple backgrounds within the Information Security space and this brought different views on the subjects. 

The sponsors shared a lot of useful information which will definitely help me personally when building the future strategies around Cyber Operations.

Thank you very much for the invitation and I am looking forward to the next events!

UK CISO Cyber Operations Lead, Aviva

Je vous remercie une nouvelle fois pour votre accueil, cette fois encore pour la qualité et la pertinence des interlocuteurs que vous parvenez avec brio à asseoir autour d’une table pour un moment fort agréable.

Le déjeuner de ce jour a été particulièrement détendu et empreint d’une franchise transparente qui, je pense, a été appréciée mutuellement.


Thank you for your warm welcome, this time again for the quality and relevance of the interlocutors that you managed brilliantly to sit around a table for a very pleasant time.

Today's luncheon was particularly relaxed and impressively transparent, which I think was appreciated by everyone.

Good event, really enjoyed the interaction. Thanks for the invite.

VP - Technology, Bank of America Merrill Lynch

Thanks very much to you, Ben and the team for arranging my attendance. I had a really productive time and it was great to talk to the [sponsor] team and others there.

Senior Consultant - Risk Advisory, Deloitte

The event was very engaging, providing an excellent forum to hear the thoughts and musings of leaders throughout cyber security and from multiple verticals.  This type of engagement is excellent to support my decision making process, particularly in terms of road maps.  It is also reassuring to hear the same issues being discussed by other organisations.... affirming that we are not alone in the great cyber space!

Global Head of Cyber Operations, Anglo American

It was a great lunch. Thanks a lot for your organization again. Looking forward to our next meet [...] A great day here in Amsterdam.

I found the meeting very interesting from a couple of points of view. [...] The venue was lovely and I enjoyed the event, thanks for inviting me.

IT Security Manager, Simmons & Simmons

Thanks for the invite to yesterday’s meeting, there were some very relevant and thought provoking conversations.

Associate Director - Group Fraud Risk Officer

Many thanks for the session yesterday – the insights from the team at [sponsor] were fascinating, as was the discussion surrounding it. The questions posed by those present were thought-provoking and certainly sparked a healthy variety of answers.

We found the event invaluable both as a networking opportunity, as well as a fantastic learning experience - the knowledge and experience shared during the discussions from all who attended was particularly useful.

Information Security, Global Processing Services

Great opportunity to network with colleagues from across all industries and discuss the mutual challenges and concerns that we are facing on a day-to-day basis.

Data Privacy & Information Security Awareness & Training Manager, John Lewis Partnership

The contents and the topics were very good, apt and to the point, and a new way of addressing and delivering the details including some live scenarios and incidents you shared with us.

I hope I will be able to join and work with you in future and deliver with you such great presentations.

Head of IS & T, RAK Investment Authority

Yesterday's lunch was very informative and the talks were very enlightening. As ever the discussions were useful and the setting as good as I remembered.

Senior Manager Cyber Security, PwC

As ever a cracking event by AKJ bringing the E-Crime Congress to Edinburgh. Edinburgh has a large, dynamic and entrepreneurial Cyber and IS demographic and it was exceptional to see this recognised by AKJ on hosting this event ! Great speakers, thought provoking discussion and innovative vendor – a great a way to kick off this event!

I thought it was an excellent event and better than the big security shows which I hate. I think it's nice that we can share our issues and experiences in a relaxed environment with our peers.

Thank you very much for the invite, the day and the excellent company. Some very interesting conversations.

It was a pleasure to participate in such a well organised event and at such a good venue

Sector Consultancy Manager, IT Governance Ltd

We found the event very productive, it was good to meet potential customers and gives a chance for decision makers to meet us and understand what we do and how we can help them with their security. Security is ever evolving and needs to be constantly monitored. These types of events enable everyone to do that in a professional relaxed atmosphere.

IT Security Specialist, ESET

Working with AKJ Associates was a pleasant experience both during the phone calls and email preparations ahead of the event as well as on the day of the event, making sure we had the equipment we needed ahead of time, anticipating any logistical issues we may have had and generally being quick to respond to any questions or requests. We would definitely be happy to sponsor one of their events again.
